1000 Words Worth – Season 2
“A picture is worth a thousand words” is an English language-idiom. It refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image or that an image of a subject conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a description does.
This saying was invented by an advertising executive, Fred R. Barnard. To promote his agency’s ads he took out an ad in Printer’s Ink in 1921 with the headline “One Look Is Worth a Thousand Words” and attributed it to an ancient Japanese philosopher.
Now l am not looking for 1000 words, l am looking for what these images create to you, the reader and writer – do they speak to you? In season 1 l displayed one image – in season 2 we are being a bit more adventurous – and awarding a wider scope to you. How you decide to interpret these three images is down to you and your creative imagination.
Perhaps all of them speak to you, or maybe only a couple or when you see them together a single thought is sufficient to lead your story.
Your task is to create a story, a tale or a poem of any length, there is no set word count to it, of the photos – create something using your imagination and inventiveness – how do these images speak to you?
